2016 Research4Life General Partners Meeting delegates

The Research4Life Annual General Partners Meeting was held at Cornell University’s Weill Cornell Medical College on 20 and 21 July 2016 in New York City. The meeting brought together more than 30 delegates and observers representing our publishing community, the United Nations agencies, University libraries, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers and two representatives from the user community.

The overall purpose of the meeting was to review the work of Research4Life and its programmes during the past year as well as discuss the emerging strategic issues, outlined in the new strategy document “Beyond 2020” which describes the priorities for the next five years and beyond .

The General Partners Partners Meeting was an invaluable space for communication, providing a showcase for the pioneering work of Research4Life and its programmes —in partnership with hundreds of publishers—in providing access to scientific information in the developing world and an opportunity to learn from our colleagues, whose feedback guides our strategic vision.

The next Research4Life General Partners Meeting will be held in Oxford in July 2017.
